Throughout 2016, as a cycle of violence and counterviolence escalated, it seemed plain to me that Trump had turned over an ugly rock. That smear — and it is a smear — is one to which Democrats appeal all too frequently. It is a smear that is transferable to even non-white Republican voters, who have somehow been seduced by the “appeal of white supremacy.”And it is an effective smear because it induces tribal solidarity. Biden’s left flank, liberals who believe that the nation’s institutions were forged in racism, might disagree with the Biden administration’s platitudes, but Republicans certainly don’t. The party must, however, marginalize the sentiments prevalent on fringes of the Republican coalition that have transformed conspiratorial paranoia into a governing philosophy.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A man who went missing while snorkelling off the Australian coast may have been taken by a shark, authorities said on Friday, after a search operation found pieces of diving equipment. The man went missing late on Thursday while snorkelling near Port MacDonnell, on the country’s south coast, sparking an air and sea search, police said. The search was later scaled back when rescuers pulled a damaged wetsuit and flippers from the water. A shark had been reported seen in the area the previous day, Hill added, according to the ABC. The country saw a spike in fatal shark attacks in 2020 with eight lives lost, up from no lives lost the previous year, according to the Taronga Conservation Society, which collects shark attack data.

The users claim that the National Guard has “turned their backs” on Biden, suggesting that this action is a display to show their rejection of the President. More than 25,000 National Guard troops were deployed to assist in protecting the U.S. Capitol for potential security concerns ahead of Wednesday’s inauguration of Biden (here). A video showing the inauguration motorcade for President Donald J. Trump in January 2017 here appears similar, with some facing away. A video of President Barack Obama’s inauguration motorcade here also shows various guards facing away from the road. Nahaku McFadden, media operations chief for the National Guard Bureau of Public Affairs, confirmed to Reuters via email that the video shows routine protocol for this type of duty.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden moved swiftly on his first full day in the White House on Thursday to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, his top priority as he turns the page on four years of Donald Trump’s tumultuous leadership. America deserves a response to the COVID-19 pandemic that is driven by science, data, and public health — not politics,” the White House said in a statement outlining its strategy against the coronavirus. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the DPA would also be used to speed up delivery of protective gear. Biden signed 15 executive actions on Wednesday just hours after he was sworn into office, many aimed at sweeping away Trump’s policies. Biden has urged lawmakers not to let Trump’s trial interfere with his legislative priorities and confirming his Cabinet.

Twenty kilogram gold and silver bricks sit at the ABC Refinery smelter in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, on Thursday, July 2, 2020. Gold eased from a two-week high on Thursday as investors booked profits after prices jumped in the previous session on hopes of a massive U.S. stimulus package under the new Joe Biden administration. Spot gold fell 0.1% to $1,868.20 per ounce by 0110 GMT, after hitting its highest since Jan. 8 at $1,871.75 earlier in the session. U.S. President Joe Biden signed a string of executive orders, shortly after being sworn in on Wednesday to jump-start the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Gold is considered a hedge against inflation that can result from stimulus measures.

Ex-President Donald Trump is not prepared for his Senate impeachment trial despite the fact that it could begin as early as next week. Giuliani had called for "trial by combat" at that rally, encouraging Trump supporters to pressure Congress to reverse Biden's electoral victory. With the impeachment article still in Pelosi's hands, the Senate trial will not begin until Monday at the earliest. Durbin added, "we've seen the videos" of the riot, many of which were posted online by Trump supporters who were part of the mob. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Tuesday said Trump was to blame for inciting the assault on the Capitol.

A Ford dealership in Tampa Bay, Florida, accidentally sold a Bronco Sport it wasn't supposed to. As Ford Bronco Sport deliveries started rolling out at the end of last year, one Florida dealership made the mistake of selling a demonstration vehicle to a customer and had to ask him to return it. Sidoti told ABC Action News he "always liked the Ford Bronco," and the new Bronco Sport is the more pedestrian version of Ford's upcoming Bronco models aimed at challenging the Jeep Wrangler and Land Rover Defender. The Ford spokesperson told Callaway dealers selling display models and then asking for them back is a very rare occurrence. So if you're also shopping for a Bronco Sport, you don't have to worry — but you can read our review of it here.

President Trump, who won’t attend the inauguration, issued a raft of pardons overnight. Even before Mr. Biden was sworn in, he sought to set a new tone for a nation torn by political strife in the midst of the deadliest pandemic in a century. “To heal we must remember,” Mr. Biden said, standing in front of the Reflecting Pool at the Lincoln Memorial. After Mr. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are sworn in at noon, Mr. Biden will deliver his first presidential address.

Former President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could last for years. Trump could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. By doing so, the now ex-president opened himself up to federal, state, and local prosecution for election-law violations, several election-law experts told Insider. Whether Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr does anything is another matter. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed in late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether the company violated election laws.

ABC said Cecilia Vega will be its White House correspondent; The Washington Post named Ashley Parker as the newspaper's White House bureau chief; Nancy Cordes will be CBS News' chief White House correspondent; and Kristen Welker will be a co-chief White House correspondent for NBC with Peter Alexander. Journalist Yamiche Alcindor has covered the White House for the PBS NewsHour since 2018, and she will continue to do so during the Biden administration.

Rudy Giuliani told ABC News that he would not be able to represent President Trump during his second impeachment trial because he himself is a witness in the case. Giuliani appeared with Trump at the January 6 "Save America" rally where Trump is alleged to have incited an insurrection, and called for "trial by combat." It was widely expected that Giuliani, who served as lead counsel on the president's various challenges to the 2020 election, would head up Trump's impeachment legal team. Rudy Giuliani now says he won't be a part of President Trump's impeachment defense team because he was a witness to what happened. Two sources close to the White House had previously told Reuters that Giuliani was on the shortlist to represent Trump during the president's second impeachment trial of his term.

Polls indicate that only a small fraction of Americans approved of the riot in Washington last week. “It’s a dangerous situation,” said Lucan Way, a political scientist at the University of Toronto who writes about authoritarian regimes. The belief is still common among Republicans: A Quinnipiac poll published Monday found that 73 percent still falsely believe there was widespread voter fraud. “Polarization is not the problem anymore,” said Lilliana Mason, a political psychologist at the University of Maryland. Partisanship was always seen as an inert, harmless thing, she said, a way to get people interested in the otherwise boring topic of politics.

Some former staffers on President Donald Trump's reelection campaign helped secure the permit for the January 6 rally that preceded the deadly Capitol riot, according to public records. The Trump campaign has repeatedly denied being directly involved in the organization of the rally. At this event Trump had addressed his supporters, telling them to "fight like hell." FEC filings show he was on the Trump campaign payroll for most of 2020. It said that if any former employees or independent contractors helped organize the event," they did not do so at the direction of the Trump campaign."
